Accredited by and delivered in partnership with Ulster University, the Postgraduate Certificate in Executive Leadership combines a personal and professional journey to excellence in leading people and organisations, providing access to networks of local, national and global academics and executive thought leaders.
Delivered in 3-day block-release workshops & with online learning support over one year, the programme empowers leaders and offers the opportunity to reflect on your career while building on your skills. The programme is structured around four taught modules each lasting three days and one five day study visit to the Global Leadership Institute, Boston College, USA.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Executive Leadership is designed for senior executives looking to expand their areas of expertise and meet like-minded individuals.
The programme forms the basis of the first year of the MSc in Executive Leadership which Irish Times Training has been delivering together with Ulster University for over 10 years.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Executive Leadership is delivered via four three-day block release modules each followed by a half-day off-site Action Learning Set. In addition, there is a five day study visit to the Global Leadership Institute, Boston College, USA (included in programme cost).
The programme is delivered using a mix of classroom teaching with leading industry guest speakers, company visits, action learning, class interaction and participation and case study analysis. Contextualised learning is supported by a range of e-books and online materials accessed from the University’s library. Assessment is by assignment at the end of each taught module with a combined assignment for the "Leading Change" and study visit modules.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Executive Leadership constitutes the first year (level 9) of a masters qualification - the MSc in Executive Leadership.
‘Each individual's journey to success follows a unique path, but all share common goals.
The MSc in Executive Leadership with Irish Times Training is not designed to teach executives how to become leaders, but to guide professionals in unlocking their full potential.’
